We are delighted to welcome you to our website. We hope you find the information here interesting and useful, whether you are Orthodox Christians who live permanently in Alanya or are just here on vacation.
For those Orthodox Christians who wished to visit Alanya for years but did not know if there was a functioning Orthodox Church there, they can now see all they need to know in the “SCHEDULE OF SERVICES” section. In this section, there is a listing of the times and locations for the Divine Liturgy and other Holy Services each week.
In the “NEWS” section, you will receive information about events and special occasions of the Orthodox Community of Alanya and the Orthodox Metropolitan District of Pisidia, Side, and Antalya.
The greater purpose of this website is to foster community and connect all Orthodox of Alanya to a great spiritual family, so that no one feels alone as long as they live in this beautiful area.
Christ is “the true Light” (see John 1:9). Those who believe in Him and are members of His One Holy Church, receive His light. This is how Christians themselves become light, by reflecting the light of Christ that is within. They cannot keep it to themselves or hide it! The Lord said, "You are the light of the world..." (Matthew 5:14). Christ's mission for Christians is for them to spread His light to others.
